Hi does anyone use a good core drill? I am looking to purchase one for occasional use, mainly 4" holes for fans etc.

I have seen 2 around the same price but wondered if they would be powerful enough.

Any suggestions

The first one is a bosch : http://www.bosch-pt.co.uk/boptocs2-uk/Product.jsp?country=GB〈=en&division=gw&ccat_id=101356&object_id=6163

And the second is : Sparky BUR2 350E 110V 1100W Diamond Core Drill - Screwfix.com, Where the Trade Buys

Cheers

Hi.

Dont think you could even core an apple with that bosch drill mate.

Of the two I would go for the 2nd one. I got the makita one from screwfix never let me down, had it for 4 years now. Have hilti one also - dogs undercarriage!!!

I thought about spending more but it may only get used half a dozen times a year.

May look on evilbay for a second hand makita.

Cheers

I have hired Makitas when i need a BIG hole at £28 a day for a Drill and normally a diamond core bit its great and saves the hassle of carting another big box about.

I was just wondering if anyone has done any core drills with a 800W sds drill. Am wondering since there seem to be new thin core drills on the market that claim to allow one to use a smaller drill (eg armeg from screwfix).
I am drilling domestic so brick and breeze block, ie fairly soft.
Also what are the cores like that allow you to use hammer action, never used one myself?
